Friar Tom is a really nice, laid back kind of guy. He obviously works hard. He cooks a delicious breakfast that each of us enjoyed. The quality of the food was just what we were looking for. Chef Don prepared dinner for us one night. My husband said he made the best scallops he's had out. My steak was tender, juicy and cooked the way I requested. My step daughter and son in law loved their dinners.
We hung out a couple times in the bar. Wendy makes some good drinks. My hubby is not much of a B&B kind of guy. His one requiremt was that the place has a bar and I didn't think such a place existed. Tom's on to something!
The location is good-just a short walk from the main strip.
There are lots of places to stay in Bar Harbor. If we make it back, we are booking here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Black Friar Inn and Pub is a hidden gem; once you find it we guarantee you will be back! Our three story building is mostly constructed from materials salvaged from the mansions that burned in the great fire of 1947. All of the finishing work in the Blackfriar was once part of the time when the steamboats greeted our shores and Bar Harbor was called Eden. Although there doesn't seem to be any new ghost here, you will occasionally feel residual energy coming from all around you. Especially if it's nighttime. And you're here. By yourself. Don't be frightened off, when you walk in our friendly and super accommodating staff is there to greet you, get you settled in and feeling at home. Chef Don does a superb job in our cozy kitchen whether you feel like a burger or a fine bottle of wine with a perfectly cooked steak. Jenny, Michelle, Taylor and Brittany are very capable barmaids with dynamite personalities and lots of specialty drinks to try. Fryer Tom is the heart of the Friar, the owner and innkeeper, he is laid back and has a wonderful hands-on approach to ownership. We are happy family here at the Blackfriar so come by, take a tour, grab a beer and let us make you feel like part of it! ... more less
